Mobile, AL – Editors of Logician Magazine have graced their front cover with ‘Hasty Generalization: 2016 Fallacy of the Year.’ Senior Editor, Prudence Jones, explained, “This fallacy is always popular, but it took the lead in an election year.”
From their lead article, the editors included these common examples.
- All Democrats are crybabies.
- All White evangelicals are racists.
- All Democrats don’t work.
- All Trump voters are bigots.
- All Democrats go low when they say they go high.
- Everything Trump says is a lie.
- Everything Clinton says is a lie.
“Next year we hope to revive the slippery slope,” said Jones. “We hadn’t highlighted it since 2013 after Obama’s 2012 win. We are pretty sure we will be able to put it on the cover in 2018.”
